The only downside to this news is the price. OWC’s 480 GB memory will be 400$, the 1TB is 650$. The price does include instructions and a do-it-yourself tool kit, for you…to do it yourself. In addition to this, it ships with enclosures for you to connect your old Macbook drive.

Apple has never been cheap: these prices are to be expected.

You can always afford a new Macbook, but that will set you back further.

Tier-1 Flash – Aura SSDs use only top-rated flash for amazing performance and dependability.

Superior Error Correction – Three-level error correction with low-density parity checks provides significantly improved reliability, and RAID-like protection for your data.

Cell-Level Data Refresh – Aura’s powerful embedded processor monitors and re-writes data blocks as needed to maintain correct charge at the cell level, improving the integrity of your data and extending the life of your drive.

Global Wear-Leveling – A global wear-leveling algorithm helps evenly distribute data across your SSD cells, extending the life of your drive by preventing any section of flash from getting worn out prematurely.
